I found these vintage Dior Retro Rounds sunglasses at Barneys New York and noticed that they were made by brand Retrosun. How are vintage Diors made by a different brand? Retrosun was started by Nicole Miller in 2005 after she discovered a warehouse filled with backstock of authentic vintage designer sunglasses. Now the brand finds designers’ stock from around the world and sells gorgeous vintage sunglasses from the 1970s and 1980s.
I am loving all of the vintage-inspired sunglass styles that are popular this summer, but it would be even more amazing to get my hands on the real piece of history! Maybe I have discovered Nicole Richie’s secret to always having the most amazing vintage styles.
Here are some great vintage sunglasses from Retrosun:
I love these delicate metal frames in soft summer hues. The round lenses are a distinct vintage style that is popping up everywhere.
This is another beautiful round lens with a delicate metal frame. I love the 1970s style with the tortoise shell and thin gold details.
Sometimes I like the vintage look where you can kind of imagine your Grandma wearing it, but it is also ridiculously fashionable. That’s how I feel about these rose-tinted oversized sunglasses with red acetate frames.
